The Airstream Diaries: Interior Cleaning AKA The Struggle is Real

This was the dirt/hair in the Airstream on a good day. YIKES!

One of the reasons that I was pumped to move into the 188 square feet of the Airstream was less cleaning. Less room, less cleaning, right? RIGHT?!?! Well, yes and no. I don’t have to clean two bedrooms, a kitchen, an office, two bathrooms and a living room/dining room, but I still have to clean, unfortunately. It’s one of life’s inevitable chores.

And although I don’t have as much space to clean, I do feel that I have to clean more often. A small space can look instantly cluttered if there are clothes laying out or the bed is unmade. It doesn’t take me a whole Saturday to clean like it used to, but there’s still a never ending stream of dishes and laundry.

Hello, my name is Bambi and my favorite hobbies are playing with my ball, begging for food and shedding!

Lately the dog hair has been out of control too. Bambi has been shedding her summer coat and mama and daddy both have long hair. Our shoes and paws also track in sand from the outdoors. It’s a never ending fight against hair and sand around here. Rugs help and so does the gravel path outside, but we sweep and/or vacuum every other day.

bugs I recently went on a fall deep cleaning spree and even cleaned out the lights in the Airstream. Woof. It was like a science experiment in there.

I think if I ever was “wealthy” (whatever that means), I’d live in a small house and hire a housekeeper. I just can never seem to keep up.

What about you? Is cleaning a struggle for you? Does a dirty house stress you out? Let me know in the comments.

    Hi Melanie, I hear u about the dog hair!!! I have a Corgi and she sheds CONSTANTLY!!!!! Love the dog, HATE the hair! It’s a never ending battle to keep up with it. But when u have a pet that is a member of the family what are u going to do?! And Bambie is so darn cute:)

      Of course, it’s inevitable. I’ll take being covered in hair all the time in exchange for that little cutie’s love 🙂 P.S. Corgi’s are adorable!

    I’ll take cleaning an airstream anyday over a large house…..as long as I can make myself downsize just that much.

      It’s definitely better but it’s a different type of cleaning. Cleaning a small space has to be done more often, but it does take less time.

    I’m right there with you on the cleaning, but, I cannot stand a dirty house! Our dog’s fur is, by lucky coincidence, the exact same color as our wood floors. But, once I see piles of hound fur, I know it’s time to vacuum. My husband also has a robust beard, which seriously sheds too. He won’t admit it but I can tell what’s beard hair and what’s head hair :)!
